Oprah’s Book Club Turns Over A New Page

“Oprah Winfrey became a publishing powerhouse when she started her book club in 1996. Her picks went to the top of best-seller lists — and stayed there for weeks. But when Winfrey’s daily talkfest went off the air, the book club ended as well. Now she is reviving it: Winfrey has just announced her second pick for the Book Club 2.0: The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, a novel by first-time author Ayana Mathis about the Great Migration of African-Americans out of the rural South.”

Oprah relaunches book club, saying ‘I still believe in books’

LA Times – “Just in time for the summer reading season, Oprah Winfrey announced Friday that she’s bringing back her book club. In a video posted on the website of her OWN network, Winfrey said, “This time, it’s an interactive, online book club for our digital world. That’s why we’re calling it Book Club 2.0.” Her book club reboot is designed to take advantage of the new technologies available to readers. The e-book editions of her selections will be enhanced especially for the Oprah Book Club, with sharing capacities and notations from Winfrey herself. She also promises to use social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook to conduct the discussion about the book.”

Paul R. Pival – “Who the frack consults television and radio? What does that even mean? Do people seriously have a specific question or problem and attempt to seek out a show of some sort to answer their information need? Yikes!”

Oprah maybe? ;-)
